SAMOA FIRE & EMERGENCY SERVICES AUTHORITY OFFICIAL WEBSITE
The Samoa Fire and Emergency Services Authority serves the two main islands of Samoa, Upolu and Savaii with 2 fire stations on each island. Apia and Faleata stations on Upolu, and Asau and Maota stations on the island of Savaii.
The Authority has diversified its focus from a solely fire fighting operation to an all emergencies type response agency. It has opened the door to many other needed services not only as part of its main functions but also as an aide in partnership with other government ministries and corporations, as well as not for profit organizations. Emergency Medical Response Service is one of the areas that has significantly increased in terms of activities, however this service is only available on Upolu operated by 3 ambulances under the leaderhip of an emergency medical response officer with the assistance of operations staff that had undergone first aid and pre-hospital care training.
Two operational ambulances are crewed by staff at Apia and Faleata Stations. The third ambulance is on stand by at the Apia station while there is a possibility that it will be shipped to Savaii island once the staff there have developed their competency to provide this service.
The Samoa Fire Service has developed its capability to be able to respond to a multiple number of emergencies by providing continuous trainings to enhance the capability of the staff as well as achieving what would be an efficient and effective service to the community it serves.
